This could explain why there is an Unprecedented Spike in Shark attacks in Maui.

so, what's the issue here?
You want to control the shark population?
How about controlling the human impact on nature?
Also, regarding kiting, and this being a kite forum,.. what are we talking about here?

We are, as soon as we lose our board, the biggest fishing lure ever, so why act surprised?

Sharks coming closer to shore following boats,.... due to shark tours and their baiting. = human impact


oh oh, this might have started something else


happy kiting, y'all

There might be better reporting of attacks now than in the past, so there may not have been an increase. But 2 deaths in 4 months when in the past Maui had a much lower frequency, maybe one death every 5 to 10 years should be cause for further investigation, and they have started a 2 year study.

No one knows the cause, or the solution, so no reason to jump to the conclusion that they want to kill all the sharks as the answer.

A Maui kiter was bit and a Maui kite student's board was bitten, so this is a relevant topic even though some may prefer that it not be discussed.
